Both me and my mum strongly believe in euthanasia for humans, and she has asked me to help her if necessary at the end - not sure I could, but I do suspect I am the only one she has asked, I doubt either my brother or sister could (sister definitely not, wouldnt like to say about my brother). My granddad died very suddenly 2 years ago when my nan was just starting with dementia, and sadly it hastened it, we are all amazed she is still alive 2 years on, and it would be better for her not to be, she isn't herself anymore, and wants to be with my granddad again, I dont know what is stopping her. She was a nurse for years, and I suspect she wouldnt want to be like this either, so it isn't just people who are in pain who should have the right of euthanasia, things like dementia can be just as debilitating, and people shouldnt have to live like that, as if they have no chance of improvement, and only going to decline, it isn't fair, and I Certainly wouldnt want to live like that.
